Oh b*llocks, is it?!

Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GWX. No, this isn’t an April Fools Day joke, we are actually publishing a Site Team article! Why? Well, because we meant to do one two weeks ago, and then again last week also, but we didn’t, for reasons which we shall expand on later. Perhaps also it is because we are a bit bored, and simply not used to having a break. But also it is to remind you of a few key FPL related things, which may have slipped your mind, understandably.

We shall however begin with an update of our GW29 performance, at least for some semblence of normality, if nothing else. Looking back at it, into what seems like a lifetime ago now, we evidently got a bit shafted with the DGW postponment having brought in Saka and Aubameyang (as captain) specifically for it, and having held onto KDB too. We’ll spare you the horror story of the rest but other than Salah getting a goal we didn’t have a single other player score above 3 points. And we had some good players, with decent fixtures. When your luck is out and all that… It looks like it meant quite a fall in the rankings too, in fact we managed to double our rank from about 82k to 164,492nd.

Onto the two article titles then..

No, this wasn’t a typo. It’s more because we have no idea when the season will restart, of course, but also less of an idea how. The fact that FPL Towers decided that we could keep making transfers throughout this ‘hiatus’ seemed to be because they presumed it would restart at a later GW. Which now looks less than likely. What is perhaps now more probable is that (if anything) there will be some sort of crammed in mini-tournament style period of about 6 weeks where they will attempt to finish the season. Re-starting at the GW30 cut-off seems the most likely scenario. How FPL deals with that is another matter, given their above stance. Will they simply reset us and ask us to forget all the interim transfers? Anything is possible. But for now we have been asked to crack on regardless, and so we have…

‘Oh, bollocks’, etc
This is a reference to our lack of a recent article. The reality is that we did intend to do one prior to GW31 and we did indeed have a meeting to discuss our phantomtransfers. Only for someone to point out in the midst of said meeting that the deadline had already passed as it was a Friday night one, and not as we all assumed a normal Saturday one! So that was one transfer down the drain. Not that we feel this will matter particularly, as it looks like we will have more than we can possibly use before proceedings get back under way.

And so we sat down in the middle of last week for another meeting… only to discover half way through that one that it was indeed an International Break, as such, and that there was no planned deadline for another week! Pay more attention, we must. Reinstante the Countdown Timer, we have…

Our GW32 Transfer(s)
Crack on regardles, we do. And we have formulated something of a mini-plan. So we thought we would share this with you, for a lack of anything else to actually say at this moment in time!

Bruno Fernandes seems to be our main missing jigsaw piece right now and so we have decided to prioritise him, along with a whole other raft of minor surgeries which we hope shall put our squad in better shape, should this be required as and when To accommodate Bruno this week we have decided to do away with our double Liverpool defence, an idea that was beginning to be in vogue around about GW29…

Beyond this we are looking at something like Saka to Mount and possibly Ings to DCL, but we shall see.

To confirm then we have SOLD Andy Robertson & James Maddison and BOUGHT Aaron Wan-Bissaka & Bruno Fernandes

Captain – Boris Johnson

    No joke, improbable maybe, predictable probably, but we have a Site Team article….

    Stay safe everyone and where possible stay the f*ck at HOME!

    Thanks. Like something that’s emerged from deep time.

    I hope the captain choice is an April Fool’s joke, given the pic you’ve put below of medical staff, and the fact it emerged today that only 2000 have been tested so far. Even the loyal press have picked up on that one.

    It’s an ironic juxtaposition.

    Here we go peeps, a quick 3 to answer.
    1– During the first Premier league season, only one manager was sacked. Who ?
    2– In 1995 who became the oldest player to play in the premier league ?
    3– Which is the largest city in England never to have had a football team ?

    How refreshing – the site team airing their rather rancid ‘lockdown work pyjamas era-style’ dirty washing! Glad to see I’m in good company with removing Robbo & getting in Fernandes, BUT had to get rid of KDB to afford it – but I thought that in the present climate that this rather rash move was probably worth it, but then again, as Kenny Everett as Quentin Crisp might say ‘…And yet…’!
    So 3 moves over the last 3 GWs (the very term sounds horribly empty now!) were
    Robbo > Doherty
    KDB > Fernandes
    Traore > Henderson (of Liverpool) – because I’d have had too many Wolves and only 2 Liverpool players otherwise AND I have been yearning to get in Hendo for about 3 months now, but have never been able to justify it! Well ‘wham bam, thankyou Jordan!’
    Cripes people, what a paradox – in normal times I’m usually very flippant, and here in the midst of a locked down PL, I have actually found myself seriously discussing weekly moves – it’s a strange old world, innit?
    Bye for now and thankyou very much Site Team, for stimulating our shattered FPL nerves! smile

    What to do here folks: 1.2ITB
    1) Spred the cash, upgrade Button and Hayden
    2) Downgrade a defender then Jimenez to Vardy
    3) Jota to Abraham
    4) Something else.
    If we do get games I would expect them to be crammed in, leading to rotation.
